Emma Roberts is TV bound. TV Guide reports that she's been cast as the lead in the Fox pilot Delirium, based on the best-selling Ya books Delirium, Pandemonium, and Requiem. The books (and show) are set in a world where love is considered a disease and everyone gets "cured" on his or her 18th birthday; Roberts will play Lena, a girl 95 days shy of said cure who meets a boy who sets her heart a-flutter. This would be Roberts's first TV role since Unfabulous, which too was set in a loveless dystopian future in which Nickelodeon controls everything. »
